Fremont, 5:06 p.m. -- Seen When Leaving Work Today

I kid you not. A man was vacuuming the sidewalks and gutter. It was some kind of industrial looking vacuuming contraption, but vacuuming none the less.

At least that is actually taking care of the leaf problem ... I have always wondered what the point of leaf blowers are ... to make your neighbors clean up your mess?

In Provo the city comes and vacuums up your leaves for you with this crazy big truck. All you have to do is put your leaves in the gutter and they do the rest.

The purpose of a leaf blower is to irritate you neighbors with the infernal racket they make as well as blow the leaves into someone elses yard. I gotta get me one of those.

I can't get my carpet vacumned, let alone a bunch of leaves outside....Here in oregon they come around and vacumn up the leaves also, everyone just rakes them into the street.

Hmmmm, industrial vacuuming contraption. I gotta get me one of those things (for the next time gabe scatters 10 pounds of pop corn kernals all over my house).

Congrats on the new job! I know that isn't relevant to the leaf-sucking superman but I haven't checked in on you for a while. I hope things are going wonderfully well.
